X2 on power washing. If you do the seats make sure that they are 100% dry before you hook up the electronics otherwise you can fry the airbag sensor in the passenger seat.

You could screw around trying to clean it. Spend two days messing around and really never get it completely clean.
Or you could simply find someone parting out one with the same interior. Good chance you have the ebony interior. Except for black, the car could be offered with color matching or with ebony only for the interior choices making ebony a popular choice.

Most of these guys are recommending pulling the seats out soaking them then reinstalling. You end up with the fabric being "loose" against the foam if the seats are very dirty like yours sound like they are. You are going to use that amazing stuff on the door panels but they are dirty like I a thinking once you remove the layer of stuff the door panel is going to be faded in some areas and not others.

You also need to clean more then the seats. You are talking about all the door panels, the front seats, back seats, carpet, back window panel, pillar covers, headliner, and some stuff I am not thinking about.

Good chance you can find someone parting out a damaged cobalt with the same interior. Pick up the entire thing for around $500. Sell the engine and transmission, get your interior, then crush it and make a bit of cash in the process.
